You can consult the rates directly the following link: https://www.rtv.co.cr/tarifas/

There is an initial Inspection rate that all vehicles must pay, based on the type of vehicle. The type of vehicle is determined by RITEVE and cross-referenced with the license plate history of the vehicle. Most vehicles do not pass all of the tests the first time. Every time a vehicle goes through the inspection process there is a fee to pay. Each subsequent fee after the first inspection is charged at the re-inspection rate. The re-inspection rate is less than the original inspection fee.

If a vehicle fails to pass all of the tests, then that vehicle will not be able to legally be on the road within 30 days of the original inspection or at the end of the month of the expiring RITEVE.
